It's hard to change behaviors & ways of thinking that have outlived their usefulness, but it can be done. In my work I help people 1. understand how the problem became part of their life & how it stays embedded 2. work through the uncomfortable feelings that emerge when one lets go of what's familiar and moves into the unknown 3. build on what already works to develop more flexible, satisfying ways of interacting & being in the world. I work collaboratively and take an affirmative approach, recognizing your creativity and building on your strengths.

I work with individuals and couples struggling with depression and anxiety, grief, shame, loneliness, relationship difficulties, career dissatisfaction, impaired creativity and unhealed wounds from early life. I specialize in working with trauma and the difficulties faced by people living with medical issues.

I have advanced training in psychoanalytic and family therapies, as well as body-based methods for working with trauma. I also teach and train therapists studying at a number of universities and institutes in New York and China. I work with adults of all ages, sexual orientations and ethnicities.
